1) Turn your outlet into a shelf.

2) Collapse your colander.

Kitchens are one area in any home, big or small, that rarely has enough storage space. This collapsible colander reduces a bulky kitchen essential into something flat and easy to store. It also fits more easily in dishwashers and stays in place over your sink thanks to expandable handles.

You don’t have to immediately Kondo your wardrobe when faced with a small closet. These S-shaped hangers give you multiple surfaces to hang pants and scarves without the bulk of traditional hangers. They’re also made from stainless steel, so they’re built to last.
